Living - and already savoring - the Adventures across the backroads of western Idaho and eastern Oregon!

The Eagles have landed

January of this year, 2013, the weather stayed so cold in Hinckley, Ohio on the shores of Lake Erie & Rocky River that the bald eagles were cruising over houses in hopes of a quick meal.  They could not access fish that were at the bottom of the river and had gathered together. 

Some kind souls decided to feed the eagles so they would survive the cold spell.  They gathered fish and started feeding the group of eagles huddled on the shore.

The photos below show what happened.  The photographer's former colleague took 
these photos in front of his home.  Incredible!

1.  A beautiful morning feeding the eagles, Jan. 2013

2.  Once the fish were thrown, the eagles did not seem to fear the good Samaritans and 
word spread fast!  

3.  Eagles vying for the fish.  January, 2013.

4.  No zoom lens used here!  The photographer was this close!  

5.  Closer yet!

6.  Here are the men who were feeding them.  So close!!

As you know, it was not too long ago that the American Bald Eagle was 
an endangered species.  A fascinating new day for us all.
